Daniel Alfredsson Out With The Flu For Ottawa Senators


The Ottawa Senators will be without their captain as they take on Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins.  Daniel Alfredsson will miss the game with the flu, it was announced about 30 minutes prior to game time.

The lines will be shuffled, with Colin Greening joining Jason Spezza’s line among the big changes that may or may not have occurred with or without the captain in the lineup.
